    Trendy fixy clothing

    Hey have you guys heard about www.cadenceclothing.net I found them by accident at craigslist. Very cool clothing. From Seattle which is great, so I am gonna bike to their shop tomorrow and get some clothing. I'm doing these Squirts a favor by mentioning them, if they haven't already got their name out there, yet.

    Why do I get the strange feeling that this thread has the potential to get this forum in trouble?

    To the models and the people who try to look like them: eat something.

    What is wrong with a bicycle on a tshirt? If it didn't come from sears or better yet urban outfitters,some creativity went into it and it doesnt scream 'look at me, i ride a fix, i am cooler than you' then no harm no foul.

    The cadence stuff is nice.

    Also, this has been posted by Mikorp before.

    That said, I like their shirts, better than some of the other stuff I've seen out there. 165mm_4916, who hasn't posted here in a long, long time was making some super nice shirts out of Amsterdam - a few of them were on the Reload site, not sure if he's still making them or not but they were hot.

    Not to be a jerk myself but I've met some pretty fast, well trained, experienced (is that what hardcore means?) riders whose tendons don't poke through the skin around their neck and knees. I am just a bit annoyed that part of THE style and THE outfit is how emaciated one looks. It seems that to have a good sense style- ie. trendy, hip, posh- one has to destroy their body by eating small portions of vegan ramen noodles.

    i cannot speak for anyone but myself, but i eat a ****ing ton of food -- protein, carbs, etc -- and absolutely cannot gain weight. i even rock protein shakes on occasion. my ridonkulously high metabolism is to blame for this, according to my doctor (that and the tapeworm). i wouldn't gain weight if my entire diet consisted in burger king "MEATNORMOUS" omelet breakfast sandwiches. granted, i would die of a heart attack first, but the point is that there are actually people who aren't skinny on purpose. i am not sure of how this came to be, but it seems that many "hipster" types fall into this category.

    That begs an interesting question. Are trendy people skinny or are skinny people trendy?

    iawtc: i am tiny; 6'1" and only 140ish lbs. i eat like a champ and it all disappears. i always make the tapeworm joke too. but yeah, it kind of sucks. but living on my own and being of legal age has led to me gaining about two inches of fat around the ring of my waste, due to too much taco bell (i know, i've recently denounced it. i know.) and too much beer (which i'm also trying to lay off of). hopefully this will get that fat off my belly, but that doesn't help the fact that the rest of my body is skin and bones. i'm not a weakling or anything... i'm just small. suggestions?

    (ps: my diet sucks. i'll admit to that.)

    This turned into a debate about being skinny - hahaha. Big deal - why be concerned about others weight? Save that for Vogue

    Would you rather find it impossible to gain weight or lose weight? Myself, I'm the opposite of you. 6'2" and 240lbs on a really large frame. i eat a great vegetarian diet with lots of exercise, but haven't managed to gain or lose much weight in almost 10 years.

    www.rapha.cc has a nice new fixie jersey. Very pricey though but their stuff is top notch and made in 'the west.'

    I like the shirts . . . BTW- I'm 6'2 and my body has biologicaly fixed my weight at 170- 175 lbs. I've tried gaining weight, but that ain't happening.

    ...I could say a lot more about being badgered about being "too" skinny

    I think cadence clothing's stuff is really cool, the shirts are kind of expensive though. I myself am a big fan of that hoodie though. And as far as the skinny thing goes, I'm 6'5" and I eat a whole lot of food, i was even doing the whole protein shake thing for a while and i can't really ever get my weight over 150 unless i'm rowing all the time.

    i, like many others have already stated do not find those "models" who actually do somthing for the company, and are not hired through some agency, are emaciated. michael rasmussen is, yet he could kill us all in a 10 mile 12 degree climb. this isnt calvin klein models we're talking about. we all have different body types, its life. i also try to gain weight, and the only way i do it by riding, when i stop i lose it. and for the veggie/vegan thing, i gained 7 pounds when i stopped eating meat.

    I am 6'2" and 300 lbs. Alot of it is muscle so I dont look like a fat guy, just like a really big guy. I was vegetarian for a year and it really didnt do much for my weight.
